Additional DGs rebel against state top cop, CM orders probe

MUMBAI: Chief minister Devendra Fadnavis on Tuesday ordered a high-level probe into the cold war between state police chief DGP Sanjeev Dayal and additional directors-general Himanshu Roy, Sanjay Barve and Hemant Nagrale over Dayal's alleged "ill-treatment of subordinates".

A senior IPS officer said that on December 3, Roy, who heads the anti-terrorism squad, and Barve, additional DG (railways), did not attend a high-level meeting convened by the CM to review the delay in installation of a CCTV network in Mumbai and utilization of the police modernization fund. When additional chief secretary (home) Amitabh Rajan sought an explanation from Roy and Barve, they said that a few minutes before the meeting, a message from Dayal's office told them there was no need for them to attend it. Rajan has asked Dayal for an explanation.

Taking serious note of critical letters by Roy, Barve and Nagrale to the home department, Fadnavis said he has told chief secretary Swadheen Kshatriya to probe the issue."Discipline must be maintained in the police force at all levels, there should be no insubordination," Fadnavis told TOI.

Dayal and Rajan did not respond to a text message from TOI seeking their views on letters by Roy, Barve and Nagrale.

In written submissions, the IPS officers made serious allegations against Dayal, alleging that he was ill-treating subordinates. "It was wrong on the part of the DGP's office to prevent the IPS officers, who were specifically invited by the CM's office, from attending the crucial meeting," the IPS officer said.

It is probably for the first time in the history of the state police that IPS officials of the rank of additional director-general of police, associated with crucial wings, have taken on the head of the police force. "It's a serious matter. The content of the letters reflects the state of affairs in the police force. It's not a happy situation for a once well-administered state like Maharashtra. The IPS officials have expressed strong displeasure over the style of functioning of the DGP. Fadnavis must step in immediately and tackle the unprecedented crisis on a top priority," the officer said.

After the terror attack on Mumbai on November 26, 2008, when then chief minister Ashok Chavan had called on then prime minister Manmohan Singh, he had asked the CM what steps he was taking to end groupism in the Mumbai police. "The present situation has arisen due to groupism. Under such circumstances, the biggest challenge before Fadnavis is to immediately take stringent measures to end it," he said. top cop,rebel,probe,CM,Additional DG
